If a friend doesn't like your new guy but cannot give you a concrete reason, maybe take her advice with a grain of salt.Conversely, if a friend has legitimate concerns, you should take her seriously. The classic cliché that love finds you when precisely you stop looking for it exists for a reason.It is easy for your judgment to get clouded when you like someone, but it is also important not to be blind to their flaws. When you are happy in your own life and you love yourself, it is attractive to others.It is important not to lose your independence when you start dating someone.Also, if the first thing you do when you open your Facebook page is type his name into the search bar, this falls into the category of over-stalking, too. (This actually happened to someone I know – very creepy). But with that said, there is a difference between doing you and just getting way too personal way too fast.One of my favorite real-life examples of this was actually said to a friend of a friend; the boy she was on a date with said, “Yeah, I have ADHD, but I don't take medication.” Another good one?

We need to keep telling ourselves the basic truths of a healthy and truly loving relationship. While you spend time getting to know someone as a friend, you are able to see more clearly whether they are right for you and you for them.

That is the danger of Facebook stalking: you can inadvertently reveal your knowledge of a personal detail that he has never shared with you in real life, which will be more than sufficiently awkward. Also in this vein, do not show up at your crush's apartment in the middle of the night and say that you “just happened to be in the building.” Especially if they never even told you their room number. At the start of a relationship, it is definitely better to show your true personality rather than try to impress someone by acting out of character.
